Allen Sutterfield is from Missouri, USA but now lives in Toronto. He is a writer/poet and I recorded him reading/reciting his poetry. He recites his first poem composed in 1966, "Tinkerman". Tinker Man ------------------- Did a tinker make the stars from some old piece of tin? And put them out on spars of sky to let us in on a secret? Did he hammer through a hateful night in his shack behind the dark? And was it love taught him to write in metal signs on cold stark empty spaces?...
